Cory Schneider named AHL\'s goalie of the year
The Manitoba Moose, in conjunction with the American Hockey League, are pleased to announce goaltender Cory Schneider has been named the winner of the 2009 Aldedge “Baz” Bastien Memorial Award as the AHL’s outstanding goaltender, as voted by coaches, players, and members of the media in each of the league’s 29 cities.

Schneider, 23, has appeared in 39 games so far this season for the Moose where he has compiled a 28-9-1 record. The Marblehead, MA native has established two franchise records this season with the longest winning streak for a goaltender (10 games) and the most wins in a single season by any Moose netminder (28 games). He has allowed three or fewer goals in 356 of his 39 appearances. He is currently the top-ranked goalie in the AHL with a 1.99 GAA and a .929 SV% along with five shutouts this campaign. Schneider is on pace to also break the team records for goals against average (2.17, Drew MacIntyre '06-07), save percentage (.922, MacIntyre '06-07), and shutouts (6 - Wade Flaherty '05-06). Last week, Schneider was named to the AHL’s First All-Star Team.

In his two seasons with the Moose, Schneider has registered a 49-21-3 record, eight shutouts and was the winning goaltender in the 2009 AHL All-Star Classic. Schneider made his NHL debut with the Vancouver Canucks this season Nov. 29/08 at Calgary, and has since registered a 3.38 GAA and .877 save percentage in eight appearances with Manitoba’s parent club. This season, Schneider was named the Reebok X-Pulse /AHL Goaltender of the Month for November and was selected the RBK/AHL Player of the Week for the week ending March 29th.

The Aldege "Baz" Bastien Memorial Award, which was first presented in 1984, honors former Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Baz Bastien, who played four seasons in goal with the AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets (1945-49) before suffering a career-ending eye injury. Bastien would go on to serve as head coach and general manager of the Hornets, leading them to the 1967 Calder Cup championship. Previous winners of the award include Jon Casey (1985, Felix Potvin (1992), Manny Legace (1996), Martin Biron (1999), Dwayne Roloson (2001), Jason LaBarbera (2004, 2007), Ryan Miller (2005), Dany Sabourin (2006) and Michael Leighton (2008).
